Water tap makes ‘star’ appearance at ITV London TV Centre

15 January 2015

Zip Heaters, manufacturers of the single source drinking water tap Zip HydroTap, has installed 29 taps at ITV’s London TV Centre Studios

The Tap incorporates what Zip Heaters says is the "most energy-efficient, filtration and space-saving features of any boiling water product on the market today and will  deliver filtered, boiling, chilled and sparkling water in an instant - providing the ideal solution for this fast-paced industry".

Specified throughout the 22-storey ITV building in central London, the HydroTap was installed to increase the amount of drinks available to employees and visitors, free up valuable space and save energy. The Zip HydroTap is said to cut out the time previously wasted waiting for the kettle to boil in large places of work, boosting staff morale and productivity. 

John Motton of Norland Managed Services, who specified Zip’s HydroTaps for ITV, said: “In such a creative, busy working environment, ITV needed a solution that would not only look good but would be able to meet the high demand for drinks whilst also saving time, energy and money.

“When working across such a large building, each floor comes with its own location issues. The options within Zip’s HydroTap’s range meant it was possible to be flexible enough to cater for each situation.”

Situated throughout the ITV London Television Centre, Zip HydroTaps have been installed in all office, green room and restaurant areas to supply filtered boiling, chilled and sparkling water instantly, when needed.

The newest addition to the Zip HydroTap family, the G4 – which launched in November 2014 - is the most energy-efficient and environmentally responsible product in the instant boiling water market; a factor which is becoming increasingly important to environmentally conscious businesses. The G4 reduces stand by energy consumption by up to 53% over the previous models. 

Paul Colebrook, Sales Director at Zip Heaters, says; “With hundreds of people working and visiting the ITV building every day, including some of biggest TV personalities in the UK, ITV had to be sure to choose a quality product that would be able to effectively meet a constantly busy demand for drinks.  We have been delighted with the feedback that we have had from the ITV London Television Centre.”

Motton continues: “As a company wanting to stand out from the crowd, you have to fit the best.  The Zip HydroTaps installed throughout the building have given a clearer, more refined look to the internal space, which in turn creates the right impression from the outset.  Add to this the positive impact on employees’ working lives and overall energy cost savings we’re experiencing, and it is clear that the HydroTap range will continue to pay dividends for ITV for years to come.”
